NVIDIA, ITRI partner to probe AI for self-driving technology

Computer Technology company NVIDIA has signed an MoU with Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) for a joint deep learning development effort to advance autonomous driving and service robots. The duo plan to bring self-driving technology to Taiwanese transportation companies in 2018 for autonomous shuttle services able to move passengers around airport terminals, amusement parks, cities and train stations. “Our effort with ITRI, Taiwan’s largest multi-disciplinary technology research institute, builds on our work to provide everything from deep learning infrastructure to developer tools to sophisticated SoCs for the global auto industry,” said Danny Shapiro, Senior Director of Automotive, NVIDIA, in a blogpost. Through the partnership with NVIDIA, ITRI aims to introduce NVIDIA-developed DriveWorks, a software development kit for developing autonomous driving applications, and DRIVE PX 2, an AI car computing…
